PM Alpha launches platform to bring Private Markets to wealth managers

Rick Steves

The platform offers a full range of exclusive private investment solutions tailored and curated for distribution to underlying investors.

Private Markets Alpha (PM Alpha) has been launched today to “revolutionise” wealth managers’ approach to primate markets by simplifying PM investment through its online digital platform.

The goal is to dramatically improve access to private markets for the global wealth management industry with a ‘one-stop shop’ solution that provides clients with access to the right products in a timely manner while helping overcome the problem of Wealth Managers having to pay very high fees, rely on cumbersome paperwork, and being cowed by high investment minimums, to access the products their customers need.

PM Alpha is backed by seasoned private market veterans and has so far raised close to £1 million through a private fundraising in its quest to popularise Private Markets investment to a wider base.

Wealth managers need to have a larger toolkit for long-term solutions

Tom Douie, Founder and CEO of PM Alpha, commented: “We aim to revolutionise private markets investments because we firmly believe that broad access to these markets is crucial for providing a wider range of asset classes to better serve the long-term needs of individual investors. We believe that in the current economic climate wealth managers need to have a larger toolkit to provide better long-term solutions to their clients and that’s what we aim to help them achieve”

PM Alpha is bringing its platform to market in order to build and support a digital community of Wealth Managers, Asset Managers and Private Markets Fund Managers. The platform offers a full range of exclusive private investment solutions tailored and curated for distribution to underlying investors.

The founding team comes from private banking and asset management distribution. Tom Douie, who is the company’s founder and CEO has more recently served as the global head of distribution at Muzinich & Co, after years at Morgan Stanley and Neuberger Berman.

PM Alpha’s team also includes former Citi Private Bank EMEA Head of Private Equity Investments Alexis Weber; former Citi Private Bank EMEA Alternative Investments Sales Lead Melyan Guerrero and former Citi Private Bank EMEA Operational Due Diligence Lead Chloe Mercer.

Together they have served some of the world’s leading Institutional Investors, Asset & Wealth Managers and Family Offices for over 20 years.
